The URL of "[files]" (or any other file) is constant:

http://www.archive.org/download/{the target}/{the target}_files.xml

When you fetch this URL, the server sends you a "302 redirect" to one of the many load-balancing mirrors where the file is stored. Just make sure your Ruby downloader can handle redirects.

thanks Albert Schlef. That works correctly and like a charm.
(wow look at all the post backs - I am sorry to have responded to the first one)
